Ural riders Tampa FL?

Post by rdkeys » Mon Jun 29, 2020 3:09 pm

Hi - new guy here. I bought a 2007 Tourist with like 6000 miles on it last week and it should be delivered to me here in Tampa this week. Never owned or even rode on a Ural but they look cool on You Tube. I am mainly going to use it as transportation for my Paramotor, (think parachute with a motor). A friend will weld a carrier on back of the bike for the motor/prop/harness unit and I will carry the wing (parachute thing) in the sidecar. Is anyone here from Tampa with a Ural? Would love to have a mentor or go to guy/mechanic.
Thanks, Randy 813-363-3600

If you can get your friend to weld up a mount for that Paramotor that will allow it to be used as a back-up for the rig then...

HaHa, Welcome to you. You got a great year for a Ural.

The paramotor is very cool as is the Ural. Hope to get everything sorted out on the bike next week to start out fresh and everything working right. Something going on with bike stalling while coasting then no power to restart. As if the kill switch is on.
2007, 5000 miles, $5200. Pretty happy!

Mine would do that when I first got it.... sort of. Mine is an 08 and it had even less miles than yours when I got it just over a year ago. Mine would sometimes cutout when coasting (like slowing to turn), but it would always fire right up when I let go of the clutch on the other side of the turn (while still moving of course). After I did the deep dive of tune up stuff (plugs, carb adjustment and sync..... ya know the things..... I did them all including a “Russian supercharger :lol: ). Now it runs like a champ. I think some of it was it simply sat so much it forgot it was a bike. These things like to be ridden.
